LNP: Losing the Dark

LNP: Losing the Dark | LIGHTING-Innovation-Design | Scoop.it
Produced by Loch Ness Productions in collaboration with Losing the Dark A short public service announcement about light pollution Available as a free download! Starry skies are a vanishing treasure because light pollution is washing away our view of the cosmos. It not only threatens astronomy, it disrupts wildlife, and affects human health. The yellow glows over cities and towns — seen so clearly from space — are testament to the billions spent in wasted energy from lighting up the sky. Losing the Dark is a "public service announcement" planetarium show, a collaboration of Loch Ness Productions and the International Dark-Sky Association. It introduces and illustrates some of the issues regarding light pollution, and suggests three simple actions people can take to help mitigate it. The show gives planetarium professionals a tool to help educate the public about the problems of light pollution. Planetarians are uniquely positioned to teach audiences ways we can all work together to implement responsible use of lighting. Losing the Dark has no license fee! We have rendered the show in many formats and languages — just go to the appropriate Downloads page. If downloading is not a viable option (for example, the movie files are too big for efficient downloading, and for theaters requiring frames to encode or slice their own movies), we can ship the fulldome show on a USB drive. There is a minimal cost for this, outlined on the Prices / Ordering page. The show is also available directly from selected fulldome vendors whose systems use proprietary encoding. In addition to the fulldome version for digital planetarium use, we have rendered Losing the Dark as a conventional flat screen video. It's on YouTube, available for online viewing, sharing and embedding on blogs and Web pages. It can also be downloaded, for use in classrooms, kiosks, museum theaters, and advocate multimedia presentations. Classic planetarium theaters without fulldome capability can show this version using their traditional video projectors. Loch Ness Productions and the International Dark-Sky Association are pleased and proud to make Losing the Dark available to planetarium theaters, educators, and viewers around the world! If we all work together, we can bring back the dark of night to planet Earth. PRODUCTION FUNDING PROVIDED BY A GENEROUS DONATION FROM: Details...

German Activities to Tackle Light Pollution | World Migratory Bird Day

German Activities to Tackle Light Pollution | World Migratory Bird Day | LIGHTING-Innovation-Design | Scoop.it
World Migratory Bird day is dedicated this year to raise awareness on the issue of “light pollution”, which is not only a problem endangering migratory birds but has effects on a huge variety of species including e.g. insects being an essential source of pray for a huge variety of bird species in particular under the passerines too. Please find enclosed three German examples, how issues concerning light pollution were tackled: In 2019 the Federal Agency for Nature Protection (BfN) published the results of a Scientific Study “Analysis of Impacts of Artificial Light on Biodiversity – Determination of indicators for impacts and recommendations for actions to avoid negative effects in the context of impacts” . In the enclosed summary of this study in English the results are presented in brief. At the suggestion of the Federal Ministry for Environment, the German Government has adopted 2019 an "Action Programme for Insect Conservation". Under the concrete measures in the areas of action, the programme addresses light pollution as a major cause of insect mortality, (page 43 -45 contains the chapter dedicated to light pollution and respective measures). For the German version and a brief summary in English cf.: https://www.bmuv.de/en/publication/aktionsprogramm-insektenschutz At 18.8.2021 the German Parliament (Bundestag) decided comprehensive changes of the Federal Nature Protection Law - including a new Paragraph 41a dedicated to “Protection of animals and plants against adverse effects of illumination” and additionally respective changes for the same purpose in § 54. - Cf: https://www.bgbl.de/xaver/bgbl/start.xav?startbk=Bundesanzeiger_BGBl&start=//*%[email protected]_id=%27bgbl121s3908.pdf%27%5d#__bgbl__%2F%2F*%5B%40attr_id%3D%27bgbl121s3908.pdf%27%5D__1652205784990
